You know what would be cool...

If Kelloggs or Rold Gold did a Next 50 All-Time Greats set in the same style as the 70/72 set: colorize each player in their home stadium background. I wouldn't even mind if they went to twenty five by adding a closer, a finalist for each position and manager, with a best ever.

Love him or hate him, Bonds is in the set at least once.

    I really like your idea...although it would be even better if Kellogg's did all of the major sports besides baseball...I just don't anyone to feel left out here.... :)

    A good idea. However, with MLB's Exclusive deal plus all the costs involved in licensing and legal wrangling not sure it would be an income generator for Kelloggs' or Rold Gold's parent company. Seems like those days are long gone.

    Unless otherwise specified my posts represent only my opinion, not fact.

    Fanatics can do it. There was no real branding on the original, just a copyright line. They could make them an insert/subset in Archives.

    I suppose they could partner up with someone such that the cards would be premiums to some product.

    UTZ chips just did it in 2020. They had 3 cards in a cello wrapper in the multi-pack bags. It was a 100 card set. Although it wasn't All-Time Greats, they obviously paid to use MLB team names and Logos.
